We rarely get time for just the two of us, so this week we took full of advantage of Conor being here as well! We had a dinner date; the kind of date where you have a real slow meal, drink a whole bottle of wine, and maybe linger at the table before heading home. We had a shopping date, where I picked up some birthday gifts as well as some Christmas goodies. I could actually try clothes on, because a baby wasn't strapped to me, and I had both hands free to carry as many shopping bags as possible (no diaper bag needed). I simply loved all of our special mother/daughter time!
But of course, I did still have to share her with the boys! She was her usual helpful self, especially when I was dealing with my awful head cold. And bless her heart for letting me take a nap every single day. I can always, always use extra sleep! She even made a batch of cookies with Liam one day, and made extra dough that she froze in individual cookie portions. Do you think I will ever be baking those cookies? No! Because every day since they have been there, I have been eating 2-3 cookie balls a day; no joke. So thanks for that Mom!
